Act 5, Scene 1 Summary The indication of the servant that Mrs Hardcastle's coach will have travelled thirty miles and that Sir Charles Marlow has arrived, informs the audience that a period of time has passed since the ending of Act 4. Hastings repairs to the end of the garden as Tony Lumpkin re-enters. Hardcastle enters with Sir Charles: the audience is left in some doubt as to the way in which Hardcastle has learnt of Marlow's misassumption , but he and his companion are heartily amused by it.
Tony Lumpkin, for his part , abetted by Stingo , the landlord of 'The Three Pigeons', invents a fantastic landscape surrounding his stepfather's house , consisting of commons haunted by highwaymen , marshlands, ranges of hills, gibbet-dotted heaths ; whereas from factual descriptions we learn only of the nearby alehouse, the stables, the horsepond, and Hardcastle 's house decorated with antlers standing at the top of the hill. Is there any point in Lumpkin's fabrications? This would be a matter for conjecture.
Landed families were also altering the layout of their grounds into a studied, but usually informal, countryside of lake, woodlands, grotto, hermit's cave and cascade. By the middle of the century this enthusiasm for reshaping had spread to the less affluent squires, and the Hardcastle family is no exception in undertaking 'improvements' which they view with interest as the work proceeds . It follows, therefore, that the intrusion of a seemingly unmannerly young man is all the more disruptive when a pride is taken not only in the house and its garden, but also in the ordering of life within these.
